Little Lost Caterpillar, The

The lost little Caterpillar tells of the adventures of a spell bound princess and her struggle with understanding the complexities of life. On her journey through the garden, she encounters many other creatures, both friend and foe. A hostile ladybird enters her life, she comes across a friendly worm, is harassed by a buzzing bee and a vicious old spider. Then a sparrow grabs her and is about to feed her to the chicks in its nest.
